Game Overview:

Many games these days are running out of innovative ideas and concepts behind their games, the reason why so many sequels and third sequels are coming out. System Shock 2 could be passed off as just another sequel to another game, but the original game was something really special and was warmly accepted by reviewers. About 99% of all games fall into one category genre or another, and hardly any are hybrid games. But those that are hybrid games, have been known to have a bad tradition of having several things wrong with them such as quirky interfaces, awful gameplay, or bad sense of either genre. However, System Shock2 is a complete new twist on genre mixing, Looking Glass was successfully able to combine the best elements of both the RPG and FPS worlds into one. The aureal gameplay which is completely immersive, combined with great graphics, sound, and interface, equal out to an awesome gaming experience that all gaming enthusiasts should experience to believe.
